Joey has managed comedy tours across the country with different entertainment companies and is the founder of Be the Miracle Network – a secular non-profit committed to activism. You can hear him confronting religious fundamentalism bi-weekly.

And finally we have Col.Barry Wingard who will be sharing the latest regarding his representation of prisoners at Guantanamo. There are developments to share as there have been Charges dropped against the Kuwaiti Fayiz, which is raising many questions and discussion as to what happens next for the Kuwaitis at GITMO.

I also recommend that you look for updates from Jason Leopold of Truthout as well as updates from Andy Worthington.

Currently he is a Judge Advocate General (JAG) in the Air Force, has served 26 years and is a veteran of both Bosnia and Iraq conflicts.

We have set a whole show aside to take Questions and allow Barry to discuss GITMO and the prisoners there.

"And I know that Justice is indivisible. Injustice anywhere, is a threat to justice everywhere" MLK

The Killing of Trayvon Martin and how this case has unraveled this month can not be underestimated, it is an important moment in our History. It is a Moment about Breaking the Silence, it is a Moment about Accountability to ourselves and each other. As a mom I can not imagine the depth of the loss and pain of of his parents. I have many questions, I think we need to be asking those Questions Loudly. We need Transparency, there can be no secrets until there is Justice for Trayvon.

(1) Why was this man allowed to pretend to be a Security Guard for this Gated Community, he had made over 46 calls to the Police Dept over the past year , calling in concerns ranging from Trash to children playing to yes, Black people walking in his community. Why did no one raise concerns over this man ?

(2) And why is the Media calling him a "Watchman" or a " Unpaid Security Guard" , he was none of these, he was a Vigilante, he had appointed himself to "secure" the neighborhood and in some ways he was stalking the neighborhood. After 46 calls the Police did not think to research or investigate him ? Did they come out and talk to him ? Did they know he was armed ?

(3) What happened that fateful day that Zimmerman followed and pursued Trayvon ? What happened when they met ? How did Trayvon just end up in the Morgue ? And what was the delay in contacting his family ? Where are the EMS reports ? EMS should have responded to the GunShot 911 calls. Why didn't anyone try to contact his family when he was criticallly wounded at the scene. I mention this because 911 / EMS would have tried to identify a way to contact next of kin, they would have used the cellphone to call his family ? Where is the cellphone ? His Head set ? His girlfriend clearly said he must have been thrown to the ground and that is why the head set did not respond.

(4) How can anyone say the Self Defense Line by Zimmerman holds any water ? Trayvon was a kid, carrying a Iced Tea and a bag of skittles, he was walking home in the rain with a Hoodie talking to his girlfriend on the phone. What part of that was threatening to Zimmerman ? And clearly if Zimmerman called him an "F---ing C--ns " , he has a Race Problem and a Hate problem. No one can listen to those tapes and not be repulsed , and even more concerned listening to the 911 Witness tapes where clearly there is a young boy crying for help in the background. ( The 911 tapes and Records are at Daily Kos, The Nation and Mother Jones and Think Progress).

People say that we don't have a Racism Problem in America. We clearly do. People say that Hate Talk and Bigotry spewed by Talk Radio and The Tea Party and Rush Limbaugh ,Ann Coulter etc are not a Problem, It clearly is a problem. Hate and Ignorance can fuel some very Violent Deadly Actions, and we as a Country need to own up to that. We owe that much to Trayvon's Family and to Trayvon and to our own Sons and Daughters. No one should be afraid to walk to te corner market on a Rainey afternoon to get a little brother skittles and a can of Iced Tea.

Our Guest today on the 99 Report at 2:30PM EST ( 11:30 Pacific ) is Mike Farrell, a fine Actor,Humanitarian,Activist to discuss The Death Penalty and his fine work on this issue for so many years. We will talk about his organization and it's evolving leadership and members, as well as ongoing projects. As it is an election year we will discuss which states are looking to make it a Ballot issue and what we can do to help with this effort, as well as how we can make this happen in more States. ( The SAFE Campaign in California is one that is currently getting notice.)

We also will be discussing the Alabama case of Thomas Arthur who is set to be executed within 6 days. We will be discussion the DNA aspect of his case, and why his case and other older cases are not allowed to have the DNA of older evidence tested.( See Below) We also will be asking other landmark cases we should be watching and what we can do to help DeathPenalty.Org with their work.

Alabama DNA Case. Thomas Arthur is the man whose Life hangs in the balance, and the Attorneys have the funds needed for the DNA to be run, but the authorities are getting in the way. Please do also share the articles attached as well. This is not just a Death Penalty Case, this is also a case with some questionable maneuvering regarding DNA. Except the Inmate is scheduled for Execution at the end of this month on the 29th, so any attention we can bring this case is very important.

More From the Discussion Today :
Do read about the Safe Campaign in California and how it is helping the State of California bring Abolition of the Death Penalty to the Ballot. It will end the Death Penalty and actually save the state Millons of Dollars. It will also set aside funds to solve unsolved crimes and even test stored Rape Lab Tests and other stores lab tests.It would lead to Life with Parole, Life Imprisonment for the existing 600 on Death Row that have had their executions put on hold for now.

Mike also weighed in on our Discussion yesterday regarding PTSD, and shared info about Practioners that are examining a new way to help Vets with PTSD, it involved Neuro Feedback.This website HomeComing For Veterans.Org has more information about this therapy .

At that time Execution issue was regaining attention due to the Execution of Troy Davis and the GOP debates ( and Perry's Record). Mike Farrell is known by many as a fine actor and for his work on M*A*S*H as B.J.Hunnicutt , but he also has worked as an activist for 30 years, educating and advocating on many Human Rights Issues, including the Abolition of the Death Penalty. You can read more of his fine Human Rights Work on his own website.
